    Has anybody seen it? I watched it yesterday. MAN, it was creepy!!!!!!! really dark humor. Even though it was 1993 (seems like middle ages to me), everything is still the same--the pre-med mentality, competitiveness, so on. It scared me.

    I've been dying to see it for years (no pun intended), but can never find it at local video stores.

    I actually know the dirctor (completely irrelevant, I know, but I thought I would share).

    "Filmed on location in North Carolina at Duke University, Durham, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the Governor's Mansion, Raleigh"

    I can't believe I haven't even heard about it. and it was made right here in my backyard.

    Hey, lady!

    Was it worth seeing? I've always sorta wanted to catch it. Is it worth the effort? Besides being disturbing, that is... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I had to see it, so I ordered it from Amazon, I found it like new for seven bucks. It was corny horror flick to me, but at the same time, seeing as how it is a waitlist pre-med movie, it has to be seen. Not as good as Jay and Silent Bob though (not remotely related of course).

    Funny, I've heard about this movie on and off from premeds like forever! last month it was on one of the local stations here, so I finally saw it. Was it good? No, but that scene where the guy misses a bubble on the MCAT scantron sheet and realizes his error was 80 questions ago and he has like 30 seconds to try and fix it? that was HILARIOUS--who hasn't had that nightmare??!!

That happened to me on the VR section! Fortunately, I was able to change all of my answers. I didn't get to do 7 questions, though, because I ran out of time. It was NOT funny and made for a horrible start.

    The outside of the fraternity house shown in the movie is the old Delta Tau Delta house at UCLA (they got their charter revoked a few years ago). I partied there a few times in undergrad.
